Sony RX1R II vs Sony A7RII Specs Comparison

Here is a quick review and specs comparison of the Sony RX1R II and Sony A7RII full frame cameras. You can take a look at the key differences between the two full frame cameras.

Sony RX1R II ($3,298 at Amazon, B&H, Adorama): The Sony RX1R II compact camera features a full-frame 42.4-megapixel Exmor R back-illuminated CMOS sensor and BIONZ X processor behind a fixed Zeiss Sonnar T* 35mm f/2 lens that grants users the ability to capture finely detailed images in an extraordinarily compact body. And RX1RII has a unique new feature: The world’s first optical variable low-pass filter, which can adjust voltage on a liquid crystal layer to adjust the light-splitting properties of the array. It also has a convenient retractable XGA OLED viewfinder for eye-level shooting, which has been implemented with minimal change in overall body size from its predecessors.

Sony A7RII ($3,198 at Amazon, B&H, Adorama): The hot Sony A7RII mirrorless camera features the world’s first full-frame 42.4-megapixel Exmor R back-illuminated structure CMOS sensor. This sensor design both improves low-light operation and speeds up data throughout, enabling fast high-resolution stills and UHD 4K video recording. Working with the BIONZ X image processor, these images can be produced at sensitivities up to ISO 102,400 and at a continuous 5 fps shooting rate. Five-axis SteadyShot INSIDE image stabilization has also been implemented, compensating for vertical, horizontal, pitch, yaw, and roll movements. The new Sony A7RII boasts high speed AF response up to 40% faster than the original α7R thanks to 399 focal plane phase detection AF points.
